Dogs of Midtown Calendar Fetches Crucial Funds for Nebraska Humane Society

Fourteen of Midtown Crossing’s cutest pooches can take a bow (wow). They helped raise more than $1,200 to support the Nebraska Humane Society.

The dogs were featured in Three Dog Bakery's "Dogs of Midtown Calendar", which went on sale at the beginning of the year. 100 percent of the proceeds – $1270 – will now benefit the Nebraska Humane Society and its mission to protect, save and enrich the lives of animals in our community.

“This effort was very dear to us because it not only raised precious dollars for the animals, it also showcased much loved pets in great homes – our mission for all the animals of our community,” says Pam Wiese, vice president-public relations and marketing, Nebraska Humane Society.

Wiese says every dollar raised through the calendars will stay in Omaha at the Nebraska Humane Society to help rehabilitate and rehome homeless animals.

“We have a big responsibility to make sure that we heal what ails them and provide spaying or neutering and microchipping so that these four legged citizens don’t contribute to pet overpopulation and can find their homes again. Community support is crucial to fund this for the 10,000 animals we adopt out each year,” she explains.

Midtown Crossing residents and condominium owners nominated their dogs for inclusion in the calendar. 14 pets were chosen (two months featured two dogs) and professionally photographed. More than 130 calendars were sold exclusively at Three Dog Bakery. They were available for a limited time only.
